Hey Syd...

I'm a little late getting in here but man, I'm w/you--I thought I was the most Un-grateful Head out there--I have virtually every DP, but I only truly am gaga over a handful of them!

I feel as you do that shows like 11-5-77 are a real let down given the infinite # of better, hotter '77 shows out there, with equally as good sound.

Others like the Cow Palace '74 show sound like they're under a blanket....wall of sound??? More like cone of silence.

I agree there are gems i.e. #10 (also my favorite, and I think one of the top 10 shows ever--best, most rocking NFA i ever heard to name just one)...but it seems overall that a reach out to the Head community and some kind of interactive mass survey would be in order to really generate better picks (they should hire Dr. FB as executive consultant).

They ARE expensive, after all, and I don't need to be spending bucks on some show from 1992 (which I did; still can't believe it)...and that Jerry show '91 Hampton??? Sorry folks, that is just not a very energetic performance --i'm being kind in saying that, I think. Very disappointing.
